This rather pedestrian episode from the first season has 1 good segment, and 2 bad ones, especially the one with Isaac(Ted Lange)and Roxy Blue(Diahann Carroll). I just find the believability factor of these folks having sex minutes after meeting extremely low, considering he's bottom of the barrel material compared to a music star, such as Roxy; you may feel the need to cover your eyes as Isaac sits naked in the bed with her. The other bad segment has Jim Nabors playing Jim Nabors basically, as he bores folks to death with boring stories about what he eats, and his relatives; the kicker is that he winds up being a famous jewel thief, and that's the big surprise, surprise, surprise, although that didn't make up for the mediocre story.
The only saving grace for this episode was titled "Help! Murder!", and starred Michelle Lee and David Groh as a married couple on the boat for her birthday. Bert(Groh)is planning a surprise party for his wife Denise(Lee), but in a typical Three's Company fashion, she thinks he's out to have her killed by dropping hints to Julie and Gopher, but she totally reads this the wrong way, like any episode of the above mentioned show. In any event, Lee is very funny, and this segment worked for me versus the others, which fell flat. I'm sure the show will gain steam as it moves on to later seasons, but this episode got stuck on the dock.
